    How to Discipline Your Parrot

    Parrots for sale are intelligent, sociable and often highly beautiful pets and make great companions for humans. However from time to time you can get stuck with a parrot that exhibits such bad behaviour as biting and screaming. Make sure your parrot has sufficient stimuli, a good diet and a comfortable environment with the right amounts of light. If all this doesn’t work then your parrot might just have behavioural issues and you will need to learn how to discipline the bird.

     

    Every time your parrot exhibits good behaviour – such as perching gently on your hand or behaves in another calm or gentle manner – feed it a treat. Speak calmly and softly to it to reassure it. This gives the parrot incentive to behave well more often.

     

    If your bird screams, just ignore it. Never shout back. Leave the parrot in its cage, ignored. If your parrot bites you, put it back in the cage, shut the door and leave the room. After ten or fifteen minutes come back, take the parrot out again and see if it bites you. If it does, repeat the process; if not, reward it with a treat and gentle conversation.
